Barking Dog

First five minutes into hotel and we had a dog barking at the adjoining door. My husband went to inquire about moving to another room. They said they did not have one comparable. They called the guest with the dog. They came back slamming doors and talking in very loud dramatic voices. Guess they were mad! Day two. Barking again. Front desk called. Two hours later they finally came back, slamming doors and more loud dramatic voices!

Recent stay

I write this review with mixed emotions, it definitely did not start off right. Our flight had us arriving before official check in time, room was not ready and the individuals at the front desk were less than helpful. We also found out that the shuttle to Universal only ran once a day for drop off and once for pick up, this is not stated on their web site, one of the reasons we booked that hotel was for the shuttle. Also there were a lot of people staying there attending the electric daisy carnival which was very akward for us. Then the cleaning staff did not properly clean our room the first night, they made the bed and left clean towels, but didn't do anything else there was still soda and hair in the bathroom sink when we got back. The hotel entrance to the side door did not lock either. However after the first day the new people at the front desk were very helpful and whoever took over cleaning the room did a great job

Nice Hotel close to Universal

My family and I enjoyed our time at La Quinta. My daughters and I stayed at this hotel because of its location to Universal Studios.l After a long day of activities we were greeted by their friendly staff asking how our day was and returned to a spotless room! The morning staff was just as sweet! We would definitely stay here again!

Although the room was clean and building was being renovated, walls were thin, could hear guests in the hallway, pillows were too high and firm, sheets were cheap and itchy. AC fan was so loud in room, luckily we had ear plugs to soften noise that were still audible with it on. Even our elementary age son complained about the comfort of this room and asked if we can stay in Holiday Inn next time.

Good hotel, close to beach

Great hotel although there isn't any parking available but don't worry a parking garagage is only a block away. The food at the hotel was phenomel. Everything is within walking distance. The beach was only a few steps away which was great. The room was small but really how long are you in the room for. The A/C was amazing with the humidity that South Beach has to offer.

Nice hotel close to Universal. Pet friendly!

Pros: Pet friendly!
Cons: The sink was clogged when we arrived; they unclogged it after we reported it to the front desk.
Location: Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure; City Walk and Hard Rock Cafe
Clean room, pet friendly, and six minutes from Universal! This is a good quality hotel if you travel with a pet. Staff were courteous and room was clean. It's not luxury accommodations, but it's good for a family on a budget. I'd highly recommend it if you going to Universal. We were exhausted at the end of the day and kenneled our dog at Universal too. It was nice to come back to the hotel with less than a 10 minute drive. Good deal!

Under Cinstructiom

The hotel was under construction, so it was not as clean as I would have liked, there was hair on this sheets and the towels. And the TV remote did not work. I was very disappointed for the price

Lipstick on a pig

Pros: They accepted pets
Cons: Totally renovate building 2 in the interim explain to customers about the renovations and charge a reduced rate to customers who stay there.
Location: Universal Studios, Disney World, Legoland. It's Orlando so there are tons of things to do.
We booked at LaQuinta because they are pet-friendly and we needed a place to stay with our two therapy dogs. If you read the reviews on this site you'll see they are either great or not. I can assure you it depends on which building you are in. Chances are, that if you are in the main building, you'll have a great experience. We, unfortunately, were placed in "Building 2" which appears to be a separate property they purchased and are attempting to give a facelift. I wonder if this is where they put the pet owners. There is no sidewalk between the buildings so you have to walk through a busy parking lot to get to the main building. As far as the building goes, it appears that instead of renovating the tired property they are basically painting and putting in new furnishings in the rooms. They haven't gotten around to the common areas of the building and it is atrocious. The carpet was dirty and patched with duck tape. There was a external doorway that was removed and covered over with plywood (that gives you a secure feeling). The room appeared clean, although the bathroom door wouldn't close and the flooring was cheap. As far as being pet-friendly goes. Aside from letting us keep our pets in the room, there was no appropriate place to take the dogs. There was a narrow strip of weeds beside the parking spaces that we used. It was just a sad experience and the negative impression it left will definitely cause us to think twice before booking at any LaQuinta going forward
